More About Workshop

Are You Ready to Be Inspired?

Are you an artist who constantly dreams at night? Or maybe you dream once in a while, but they stay in your heart forever? This is the perfect workshop for you…

Dreams connect all of us to a deeper, more spiritual place. They surrender us to the feeling that anything is possible. Learning how to capture your dreams in your art will bring you immense freedom and fulfillment.

In this exciting workshop, Dimitra will help you understand the deep meaning of symbolism and how to incorporate symbols in your own artwork. You’ll learn how to understand your dreams and use them as inspiration in your paintings for a richer, more personal message. This workshop includes inspiring lectures and discussions, combined with creating your very own painting using Dimitra’s mixed media techniques. Also teaching portions of the workshop, Elli Milan (Founder of Milan Art Institute), will provide one-on-one attention and instruction while you create your piece.
